Video: Three ejected in Ohio State-Michigan scuffle

Michigan-Ohio State is one of the fiercest rivalries in all of sports, so it’s not uncommon for tempers to flare a little bit when the two teams meet. That’s just what happened early in the second quarter following a short Ohio State kickoff return. The two sides mixed it up after returner Dontre Wilson was brought down near the 15-yard line, and, in the end, three players were ejected.

I think if questionable helmet to helmet contact penalties warrant suspensions that carry over into the next game, repeatedly throwing punches and flipping off the crowd should result in the same. Those OSU clowns should have to sit at least the first half of the B1G championship game. There will always be scuffling during football games, but there’s no place for punches being thrown in amateur athletics.

WIth all the hitting in football, throwing a punch doesn’t seem to be too vicious, especially when the guy is wearing a helmet. On the other hand, Marcus Hall should have stayed put.. And, speaking of clowns, why was allowing UM surround Wilson after the run, taunting and not letting him out not an unsportsmanlike conduct That doesn’t happen and there is no altercation.

The return guy was horse collar tackled and then mugged by the michigan team when he tried to get up. What was supposed to happen if anybody should get thrown out of the game it should have been the ref’s. Once again the ref’s tried to cheat for michigan but they still lost. Ha Ha screw you michigan.

How about the six man UM goon squad that converged on Wilson and started the whole mess…what was that?

Doug on 11/30/2013 @ 6:35pm EDT Said:

hey desmond, that clown on michigan who only plays on special teams that nobody heard of, what was he doing out there??

Zoumonkie on 11/30/2013 @ 7:57pm EDT Said:

Michigan started it and Ohio State took the bait. A typical UofM dirty trick.

Capt601 on 11/30/2013 @ 9:05pm EDT Said:

Either way. Poor sportsmanship by both teams. Poor job by officials. And soon to be, poor job by big ten leadership in enforcing sportsmanship. They will handpick the good players and forget they did anything.
And to top it off, except for the close score, poor game on both sides – zero defense.

Throwing punches gets you a game, birds too. Here is how this will go.

The kick returner will play against MSU, threw a punch and was ejected. He is set.

Double bird is out, he would have been set too by keeping his hands in his pockets.

There are 3 other Buckeyes who will likely be suspended for the MSU championship game. They threw punches and did not get ejected.

We could talk about Michigan suspensions, however it really is not relevant to discuss Texas Bowl rosters.

There were a whole bunch of _ichigan players throwing punches before the first punch was thrown by Wilson. I think when the league goes through it frame by frame, from the face mask/horse collar that wasn’t called by the refs, getting surrounded by the _ichigan players and pushed downs, to the first punch by #34 from _ichigan, the helmet ripped off, the other punches thrown at Wilson’s head after the helmet comes off, THEN Wilson throws his first punch – there will be quite a few _ichigan players disciplined and maybe the refs will be reprimanded for how they handled the ejections and non-calls (unsportsmanlike on _ichigan, face mask/horse collar, etc.).

imz23 on 12/1/2013 @ 9:09am EDT Said:

Unfortunately, even with the precedent Delaney set and his “punches thrown warrants automatic suspension”, I doubt that Delaney will step up and suspend any of “HIS” Buckeye players for the B1G Championship game. In addition to Hall & Wilson, I also saw OSU M. Thomas #83 throw a punch and Braxton Miller grab a guy by the face mask and throw him down.

Delaney, following his “Tattoo gate” protocol will most likely suspend Hall (RS SR) against Navy NEXT YEAR, while Wilson & Thomas get suspended for the spring game. If I was a non B1G Bowl team (IU, PUR, IL, NW), I would be worried about how they will be punished for OSU’s transgressions.

Jack2011 on 12/1/2013 @ 9:23am EDT Said:

I can’t wait for the hypocrisy from Delaney to show through for suspending Gholston in 2011 and doing nothing for his baby, tOSU.

Dr. Z on 12/1/2013 @ 9:39am EDT Said:

Rule 9, Section 5, Part c.
During either half, coaches or substitutes shall not leave their team area to
participate in a fight, nor shall they participate in a fight in their team area.
PENALTY—15 yards from the succeeding spot. Automatic first down for
Team B fouls if not in conflict with other rules. Disqualification
for the remainder of the game and the first half of the next
game [S7, S27 or S38, and S47]. For fighting in the last
game of a season, those with remaining eligibility shall serve
suspensions during the first game of the next season for which
they are eligible.

Should this not be an automatic suspension for the first half of the B1G Championship game for Braxton Miller and others who came off the bench?

Todd Halbert on 12/1/2013 @ 10:02am EDT Said:

Just another opportunity for the Big 10 office to employ its usual double standard when disciplining or otherwise dealing with its “2 marquee programs.”

Buckshave7 on 12/1/2013 @ 10:24am EDT Said:

Wilson is 5-8 and 170 lbs. Yet 6 players in blue jerseys were allowed to rip off his helmet? Was the whistle not blown after 3 players in blue jerseys couldnt bring him down?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVs7AB0rr_k shows Braxton Miller take swings in the fight

Scott on 12/1/2013 @ 11:56pm EDT Said:

He was facemasked or horsecollar tackled, then dragged by his facemask when he was trying to get up. No penalty was called on UofM. Then they mugged him when he finally got up. Pathetic move by UofM, knowing they couldn’t win a fair game.

Charles Anderson on 12/2/2013 @ 1:39am EDT Said:

The argument that Miller and others should be suspended for coming onto the field to join the fight is void because this was a change of possession. OSU’s offense and Blue’s Defense were both trotting onto the field when everything got started. Watch the replay and you’ll see far more than 11 blue shirts on the field.

That said, it would not surprise me to see Hall get suspended by the B1G for the 1st half. against Michigan State.

Ricardo M on 12/2/2013 @ 3:16pm EDT Said:

The NCAA needs to go back and review this event. This looked very much like a planned taunt by Brady Hoke. If you revisit what transpired after the tackle, no less than 8 Michigan players immediately circled Dontre Wilson specifically to taunt him. I’ve watched a lot of football and have never seen anything quite like this. Eight out of eleven players don’t just show up after the play is over and perfectly surround the player without preplanned coaching. This was specifically to stir things up and distract. This fight would never have taken place had Michigan not purposefully taunted. If you’ve ever played a team sport you know that you would have to be a complete wus to not go to the aid of one of your teammates who is being surrounded and taunted by 8 opposing players!

Scoop newsworthy on 12/2/2013 @ 10:00pm EDT Said:

Way too heated. Osu player should never have been surrounded like that. I blame the officials for losing control of the game. They should have been all over that. Until taunting is REALLY penalized, we will continue to see these Miami like eruptions. Don’t have anything to do with either team, but coaches, officials and the league need to stop the nonsense. What happened after the surrounding and helm it removal was just an extension of an out of control situation.
